We had checked other reviews on "Trip Advisor" when planning our trip to Stratford, and read very positive reviews about "The Chisholms". I am not sure there are enough complimentary words to describe our exceptional experience! Our host was lovely...warm and welcoming! There is a huge veranda with comfy chairs to sit and have a glass of wine before dinner.... More

This CHISHOLMS was perfect. This is our 2nd year at this B&B. (Will certainly be back again) The service was excellent and the breakfast was phenomenal. The location was great, walking distance to the theatres, restaurants and the river. Heather, the owner is very friendly and helpful.

Since it's on the main drag (Ontario St.), it's easy to find, but a little prone to traffic noise. Stratford appears to have grown a little busier since we were here in 2013, so more traffic. Entrance to the parking area is off Front St which comes out to Ontario St. at a traffic light, so it's easy to get... More

We stayed in the English Room which was enchanting in it's decoration, with all the amenities you could wish for. The ensuite bathroom was equally charming and very modern at the same time. Breakfast was delicious and our hostess, remembered our dietary needs from the time of our reservation. Will definitely come again.

My first stay at this B&B was 11 years ago where Kent and Diane were the owners. It was a very lovely stay back then and it was the small things like morning trumpet calls for breakfast being served, to the 8' x 11' glossy photo developed for us that made the first stay memorable.
